BRUNSWICK, Ohio -- People in Brunswick are still cleaning up and drying out after another round of wicked weather tore through Northeast Ohio Tuesday night.

The thunderstorms and flash flooding were a one-two punch for one community that is still cleaning up after an EF1 tornado touched down Monday night.

"It's something you could never imagine. I've always wanted to see a tornado but not in my own neighborhood," said Michael Canfield of Brunswick.

Another soggy day of cleanup for people who live on Acorn Circle in Brunswick.

"Our chimney is on our deck. We have a skylight in our house now," said Rashaun Cole of Brunswick.

But the damage outside is nothing compared to the damage inside Cole's house.

"The rain was coming down so hard, it was like you were standing
outside; I mean it was that bad," said Cole.

The second floor of his home is completely destroyed.

And to add insult to injury, Tuesday night's thunderstorms caused an even soggier mess.

"It brought everything back full circle. We were thinking about the house and the damage already to it and thinking there's going to be further damage by the rain," said Cole.

"After the flooding back in May, flooding we've never seen before, we were concerned. Here comes another storm. Is our basements going to flood again?" added Canfield.

Meantime, the Coles are staying in a hotel until they are allowed back inside their home again.

"Four to six months we were told. Everyone is safe though; that's the main thing," said Cole.
